Island Time in the Yucatan - Cozumel - 2019 ( 5 Hours )
Cozumel, Mexico | 22 Oct 2019

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Sightseeing • Culture, History & Arts

Our day on Cozumel begins with a drive through the buzzing streets of San Miguel de Cozumel, the island’s only town. With excellent food, a friendly atmosphere, and a family-oriented culture, San Miguel is a great place to experience a vibrant Mexican-Mayan community. We’ll visit the heart of this colonial town, the zocalo (central plaza), the shady Parque Benito Juarez, and La Iglesia de San Miguel, a church named for a small white statue of St. Michael the Archangel that local farmers discovered in a field more than a century ago. We’ll continue around the island, admiring the magnificent beaches, and make our way to San Gervasio, a sacred Mayan archeological site dedicated to the goddess Ixchel, deity of midwifery and fertility. A modest but fascinating collection of stone monuments, this site was once a sacred pilgrimage destination for Mayan women from the mainland. After our visit we’ll head to town to Pancho’s Backyard for regional Mexican fare, serenaded by the festive jingle of the marimba.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual resort wear with comfortable shoes and sun protection. Moderate to strenuous walking (approximately 300 meters depending on where the ship docks) and includes some uneven surfaces and steps.
